He was a miracle sent by God to save her. That was what Mariah's aged and ailing husband called the mysterious knight who had been brought unconscious to their doorstep. She was a wife, soon to be a widow, and though the course of action her dying husband urged upon her might leave him with an heir, it would lead her into terrible temptation.

Old Sir Edmund of Mildenhall had wed Mariah to save her from a disastrous marriage, but he was now much too ill to sire a son to inherit the keep and his lands. Indeed, Edmund was dying and desperate.

When Sir Falcon is set upon by bandits and brought to Mildenhall to recover from his wounds, Edmund seizes the opportunity. At the earl’s urging, Sir Falcon believes the lovely Mariah to be Edmund’s daughter. Despite his resolve, Falcon cannot deny his desire for her. Once Falcon regains his memory and his strength, he departs for London – leaving a precious secret behind.

Fighting King Henry’s battles takes Falcon away to France for a while. When Falcon returns, old Edmund has passed on and Mariah has a young son. Seeing a golden opportunity to take what he wants, Edmund’s brother, Osgood, seizes his chance. He believes that if he can force Mariah to wed his son, Walter, the earldom will at last be his! As soon as Mariah bears Walter a son, her own son, Robert, will quickly and conveniently be disposed of. It was the perfect plan. Only Sir Falcon, Mariah, a handful of faithful men-at-arms and servants stand in the way of Robert’s murderers.

I adored the twists and turns of the plot in this story. In addition, the descriptions of Mildenhall were so realistic that I could almost feel the rushes crushed beneath my feet and smell venison cooking on the fire spit. This historical account also casts wonderful light upon the plight of noble men and women at a time when treachery and deceit vied with honor and strength. At what price is a knight’s honor, if it be at the cost of love?
